Help us train them

Dear Patriot,

I can't believe it's already May!

The year is flying by and I thought I'd take a moment to update you on the most critical and biggest initiative that American Majority has ever taken on.

It's called the New Leaders Project. You see, last November's elections were just an opening salvo in the long war that will determine who will control America’s future: the American people or a ruling class of elite incumbent politicians who have driven this nation down the road to statism for too long.

America needs new leadership --
right now. At all levels of government. We need leaders who have the ability to effectively communicate the ideas of free enterprise, limited government, fiscal responsibility, and individual freedom, while at the same time running sound campaigns.

That's the goal of the New Leaders Project: identify and train new leaders who will run for office by the filing deadline in 2012.

The response to our New Leaders Project has been overwhelming. Since its launch, just under 500 tea party groups across the country have stepped up to be a part of this program to help us identify leaders who are prepared to run for office. Our ultimate goal is to recruit and train 10,000 candidates -- and already, we have pledges that total over 5,000 recruitments. This is far ahead of the goal we set for this point of the year.

Patriot, we have these leaders identified. All they need is the training -- and that's where you come in. Can you chip in just $5, $25, $50, or even $100 or more to help train this farm team of new leaders? (Your contribution is 100% tax-deductible).

You see, when we sat down to set our budget earlier this year, we never dreamed that nearly 500 tea party groups would have already taken the pledge and begin actively recruiting new leaders. We are far ahead of the schedule we anticipated.

It is certainly a good problem to have: Americans understand that we must break the strangle hold of incumbents who continue to vote for more spending and more government intervention in the free market -- and they're standing up and doing something about it.

Training is what American Majority does best. In 2010, we hosted 246 training sessions across the country, educating 9,165 activists and candidates. We taught them how to hardwire precincts, build coalitions, be effective online, and work for greater transparency and accountability in our government.

No wonder Erick Erickson, editor of RedState, remarked, "American Majority is building a farm team for our movement, and so far, the results have been nothing short of remarkable." In fact, just last week, Erick posted again on the New Leaders Project, saying, "There are two authentically grassroots activist groups right now that I will go to mats for: American Majority and Heritage Action for America."

Our continued success at identifying and training a new crop of real leadership depends on your generosity.

As you can imagine, our mission doesn't excite those with deep pockets who depend on entrenched incumbents for special favors, handouts, and invitations to the cocktail party circuit. Nor does it excite the party machine designed to protect incumbents -- no matter how far they've strayed from fundamental principles.

Our mission is advanced solely by the generosity of Americans like you. The New Leaders Project will not only impact elections in the near future, but for years to come. Our identified and trained leaders will run for anything from school board all the way up to Congress. This project is also about breaking the cycle of incumbency at all levels, local, state and federal, and devolving political power out of DC and state capitols.

Please make a generous tax-deductible donation of any size to the New Leaders Project right now

Patriot, we couldn't do it without you. Thank you for being a part of this exciting program. With your help, the Tea Party will continue to be a sustainable political force -- one that activates citizens, identifies credible leadership for America's communities, and ushers in a new era of accountability.
